Dr Benson is primarily in business doing SSA evaluations--and as you can imagine--he is only interested in telling SSA what they want to hear. I was lucky in the fact that my 2 primary care doctors stood with me and disputed the findings of Dr Benson, but the trauma he added to my already unbearable condition was hard to overcome.

Is a very knowledgeable and empathetic doctor who will take time to get to know you. Doesn't push medication as other doctors I've known in the past. Really cares for the well being of his patients and will see you as an individual not a stereotype of your sickness. I'd recommend him to anyone.
